    The article focuses on the origination and development of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). It discusses the pathogenesis of PBC, a chronic cholestatic liver disease affecting the biliary epithelial cells lining small intrahepatic bile ducts. It discusses the pathological factors in PBC from an...

    To assess the role of intrahepatic portal-systemic shunts in the reduction of portal blood supply to the liver cells in cirrhosis, we measured portal venous flow (blood flow in the portal trunk) by the pulsed Doppler flowmeter and intrahepatic portal-systemic shunt index from the counts over the...

    OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) on portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG) and gastric hemodynamics. METHODS: A total of 16 patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertensive gastropathy were prospectively...

    Autonomic dysfunction may contribute to the hemodynamic disturbances in cirrbosis. Tests of autonomic function were performed in 20 patients with cirrhosis and 20 healthy subjects. The patients with severe cirrhosis (Child's grade B or C) bad significant reductions in the Valsalva ratio, the...

    Aims of this study are to establish the role of bradykinin in the maintenance of peripheral vascular tone in cirrhosis and to establish whether patients with cirrhosis have normal endothelial function. The study concludes that bradykinin does not appear to contribute to the maintenance of...

    Harvey's discovery of the general circulation of blood helped to displace the liver from its central role in Galenic physiology. His concept of hepatic function, however, followed the teachings of his predecessors. Harvey described the structure of the liver accurately, and he insisted on an...

    OBJECTIVES: Previous data indicated that the proliferating cell nuclear antigen-labeling index (PCNA-LI) reflects the liver functional reserve in human liver cirrhosis. The aim of the study was to evaluate the hepatocyte proliferative activity as a marker for the outcome of patients after...

    Recently, macroregenerative nodules of the liver have been regarded as putative precancerous lesions in human cirrhotic livers. We describe the morphologies of two macroregenerative nodules, one benign and another harboring a malignant hepatocellular focus, occurring in two patients with primary...
